Bruce Springsteen Working on New Album While on Tour
It looks more and more likely that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be touring the United States yet again. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Bruce stated that he has been in the studio with members of his band, as well as Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello.
“I have stuff I’m working on that I’m very happy about,” Bruce Springsteen said backstage before his June 3rd concert in Milan, Italy.
He was talking about his plans for the followup to the 2012 studio album, Wrecking Ball. “I hate to say, because I don’t like to be wrong,” he added, laughing. “But I have a lot of material. I still feel like I’m in the middle of the well.”
Springsteen, whose European trek ends in Kilkenny, Ireland on July 28th, has already cut new tracks this year, during the recent Australian leg of his world tour. He and the E Street Band – with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine temporarily subbing for guitarist Steve Van Zandt – spent one of their days off in a studio in Sydney. That was a first, Springsteen pointed out: “We’ve never had a recording session during a tour in our lives. We did a couple of things that I wanted to put down. So that was very exciting. And being with Tommy was exciting. The band – Steven, Nils, all those guys – continues to be a source of inspiration for me.”
